Carnie Wilson Is Suing Mad!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersReality TV


Looks like the Game Show Network pissed her off!

Carnie Wilson is suing GSN for $277,500 in additional pay for work she did on her series Unstapled.

According to the lawsuit, Carnie was to receive $120,000 for 24 days of work totaling in six weeks of episodes, but the show ended up taking 53 days with even more hours per day. The complaint reads:

"Accordingly, at the rate of $5,000 per day, which is the daily rate of said contract, Defendant GSN owes to (Wilson) the additional amount of $277,500 with legal interest thereon from the final day of shooting."

But a GSN spokesperson said, "We are not aware of any lawsuit by Carnie Wilson against GSN."

We wonder if her recent termination from The Newlywed Game has anything to do with this?

She got the axe!

The National Enquirer
is reporting that Carnie Wilson was fired from her hosting gig at The Newlywed Game because she wasn't funny enough!

The View's Sherri Shepherd and comedian Jeff Foxworthy!

Better luck next time, Carnie!

Carnie Wilson Collapses!

Filed under: TV News


Oh, no!

Carnie Wilson collapsed on the set of The Newlywed Game, causing major concern for her health!

Carnie blamed the medication she's on for a cyst that doctors found on her neck, but the producers fear that her excess weight is to blame. A source reveals:

"In the middle of the show, Carnie went white and began to sway. Her speech was garbed. During taping days, a medic is just off-camera.

"She's managed to lose some weight but the pounds aren't melting away, which bothers her. I think now she's finally motivated to take off the weight and keep it off."

When Carnie appeared on the Dr. Oz Show in February she was told that she dangerously obese and she admits that having kids "derailed" her weight loss. Carnie says:

"I need help. Having children derailed me a bit. I don't want to be drastic. I want to be realistic. I have to be a teacher to my daughters.

"Lola started to notice commercials on TV with people who are trying to lose weight, and she looks at me. She's thinking about this stuff, and it's getting to her."

You can do it, Carnie — just do it safely!

Update: According to the show source, Carnie did not collapse. She became lightheaded on the set.
